Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few weeks you’ll probably have run into videos of people undertaking the Mannequin Challenge.

Kickstarted in the US, the trend – people standing frozen still while the camera swoops around them – is now a bonafide worldwide phenomenon.

Beyoncé did it, Paul McCartney did it, the BBC Radio 1 crew did it, even Hillary Clinton had a go just prior to this week’s US election.

But the best of all might come from the Victoria’s Secret Angels, who yesterday delivered an epic video of themselves frozen in time.

The gym session features the models, including Brazilian Luma Grothe and Angolan Maria Borges, has already pulled in an astonishing 1.2 million views on Instagram.

Apart from the odd bit of blinking (hey, Hillary did it), this was executed with near-perfection.

Watch the full Victoria’s Secret Mannequin Challenge below:
